This world is a cruel place. People are so mean. Its actually quite embarrassing what this world has came to. Also is is terrifying that the Congo is still similar today, as it was back when King Leopold became king. The world is a different place today than it was back when King Leopold took place. You would think that things would have changed over a long period of time. Also because the rest of the world changed like the United States with Slavery, you would clearly think that the Congo would still be like it is today. The Congo is still very poor, and facing long term effects on imperialism. Most citizens make a living as farmers. There is still a lot of violence (economic, and political) because of the wars, and conflicts over the years. The citizens over in the Congo are unable to have protection for their people, and they suffer from overnight neglect, and poverty.
